Anywhoo... have a couple of cards that I have made in the last few days. One card is for the current Sketchbook Saturday sketch challenge. I just love that challenge because it is a "just for fun" challenge. No one is judging your card and you can just take the sketch where you want to go with it. Sweet Chupa envisioned this sketch as a one layer card, but I wasn't in the mood for one layer so I added the additional layer. I'm still in my white on white mood so this one is definitely clean and simple. For this card I also used this week's Splitcoaststampers color challenge: SU!'s Always Artichoke, Cajun Crazy & Chocolate Chip. I don't have the Cajun Crazy color so I used SU!'s Pumpkin Pie instead. The floral image is from Stampin Up! and called "Field Flowers". The sentiment was stamped and then diecut using a My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Stax die. (I think that die set has officially become my favorite die set of all time!). The it was popped up as shown.
Deconstructed Sketch #56. This is also a "just for fun" kinda challenge which is why I was drawn to it as well. For this card I went with a white card base and then added in the color using my Taylored Expressions June Key Ingredients kit. I used the new TE stamp set Delightful Day that was designed to coordinate with the Echo Park Hello, Summer 6x6 pad that is part of the KI kit. The stamp set and the paper pad are absolutely adorable and I can see myself reaching for both of them alot in the future. I should let you know that until July 10th the stamp set is only available to Key Ingredients subscribers. All the cardstock and embellishments are from the kit, as well. I stamped the floral image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored some of the flowers with Copic markers. Buttons from the kit were adhere to two of the flowers. Overall I pretty happy with the card, except for the little strip at the bottom. I keep thinking that I should have added some patterned paper to it, but then, again, maybe not!
Thanks for stopping by... hope your summer is off to a wonderful start!!
